At the end of the tournament, the Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Rami Salem, acting on behalf of PSUT’s President Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai, awarded the prizes to the winning universities.
PSUT’s President, Prof. Al-Refai, congratulated the University's family and the five students who made up the winning team. He expressed his pride in the ability of PSUT students to achieve victory in a wide range of extracurricular competitions, now adding a new sporting event, that of show jumping, to the list of accomplishments. This is in line with the vision of HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, Chair of PSUT’s Board of Trustees, to make the University a leading name and have it represented at various national, regional and international forums. Such events also provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and expertise, as well as stimulating a spirit of teamwork, participation and fair play among fellow students in various extracurricular activities, in addition to promoting their academic careers.
